What an exhilarating episode of The Vampire Diaries this week! It's given our staff plenty to discuss in the latest edition of the TV Fanatic Round Table. Join us for it below...
Most shocking development of the night: Stefan's return to human blood, Caroline outing herself to her mom, or Mason's alliance with Katherine?
M.L. House: The alliance. Not simply because these two are now working together, but because it was revealed how Katherine entered Mason's life at least a year earlier. So many questions from this surprise and directions it can go in...
Elena: Most definitely Mason's alliance with Katherine. There's nobody who can say they saw that coming.
ViddWizard: Let me add most boneheaded, in addition to most shocking. Caroline has not been known for good judgment. But eating one of her mom's officers and stepping into the light in full vamp mode could have been better thought out.
Should Damon have killed Liz?
M.L. House: Yes. The touchy-feely side to Damon might make him attractive to Elena, but this is all about survival. Just look at the title of the episode. Kill or be killed, big D. You need to actually be alive in order to flash that winning smile.
Elena: I think Damon is becoming the Damon he was before Katherine messed him up. I think he actually thinks Liz is his friend.
ViddWizard: I think it's showing how much Damon has grown that he didn't snap her neck instantly and even came up with the plan to wipe her memory instead.Dumber move on Jeremy's part: Revealing to Tyler he knew about his secret, or not following that girl upstairs?
M.L. House: The admission to Tyler might come in handy later on. But Jeremy's refusal to go upstairs with that girl ensured that he would not come in hand... nevermind.
Elena: Considering telling Tyler resulted in Tyler letting go of his neck, he was stupid not to follow the girl.
ViddWizard: A hot, tipsy, flirting girl wanted Jeremy to follow her up stairs and frisk her. He didn't go. What a MORON!!!
Will Stefan's blood-based plan work?
M.L. House: Absolutely. What could possibly go wrong when you imbibe the same substance that drove you to almost commit murder just a few months ago, only this time you suck it from your girlfriend's veins? I wanna know why Stefan thinks this will work: Damon drinks human blood and still can't take Katherine down.
Elena: I think so.
ViddWizard: Sure, it worked for Katherine and it works for allergy shots... why not?
Will Tyler eventually turn full-fledged werewolf?
M.L. House: Yes. And then he'll carry his high school basketball team to victory!
Elena: He has to. He almost killed both Jeremy and that poor girl all in one episode. It's only a matter of time.
ViddWizard: Yes. At the rate he is flinging co-eds down the stairs, it won't take long.
